Institute for Advanced Study / Princeton University Joint Astrophysics Colloquium

The NASA Parker Solar Probe mission at the edge of the solar streamer belt
Stuart Bale
11:00am|Virtual Meeting
The physics of astrophysical coronal heating and the origin of the slow solar wind remain compelling problems in heliospheric physics, and plasma astrophysics more generally. The NASA Parker Solar Probe mission was launched in late 2018 and...
